Thinking Yourself Thinner

Find exercising a bore? Want to lose weight but hate going to the gym? Well there is some very good news for you. A new Canadian study has shown that thinking about doing exercise has the same effects on your body as actually doing it.

The Canadian study compared a group of people who exercised regularly with a group who did not do any exercise at all, but who thought themselves through exercising three times a week. The group who did not do any physical exercise but thought about it experienced the same gains in strength as the group who actually did real physical exercise.

The experts say that thinking about exercise release hormones that causes muscles to develop and speeds up the metabolism.

So lie back on the couch and just think you are on a long run.
